In the film, the code that composes the Matrix itself is frequently represented as downward-flowing green characters. This code uses a custom typeface designed by Simon Whiteley,  which includes mirror images of half-width kana characters and Western Latin letters and numerals .  The color green reflects the green tint commonly used on early monochrome computer monitors .  Lynne Cartwright, the Visual Effects Supervisor at Animal Logic , supervised the creation of the film's opening title sequence, as well as the general look of the Matrix code throughout the film, in collaboration with Lindsay Fleay and Justen Marshall.  The portrayal resembles the opening credits of the 1995 Japanese cyberpunk film, Ghost in the Shell , which had a strong influence on the Matrix series ( see below ).  It was also used in the subsequent films, on the related website, and in the game The Matrix: Path of Neo , and its drop-down effect is reflected in the design of some posters for the Matrix series. The code received the Runner-up Award in the 1999 Jesse Garson Award for In-film typography or opening credit sequence. 
I have been a follower of your blog for years but I have never felt so strongly connected to a post before I read this. Thank you for always speaking your unabashed truth. We need more of your voice in the world. These people cannot see through the hatred that blinds them. This hatred stems from something that none of us can uncover and it is NOT our duty…it is theirs. As we all know they choose to remain an unending powerhouse of methane idiocracy Take your fart boxes elsewhere. We got our fill with Soylent’s adverse effects that you have not effectively disputed…only highlighted your ignorance with crude insults that prove absolutely nothing.
The . Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the . Food and Drug Administration (FDA) continue their investigation of Soylent Green, which has been found to contain people and people-related
Based on information currently available, FDA and USDA believe the likelihood of illness after eating Soylent Green would be very low. The agencies are taking certain actions out of an abundance of
caution. As announced on April 26, Soylent Green known to have been adulterated (., contaminated with adults) will not be approved to enter the food supply.
As reported on April 22 by FDA, the Agency determined that plankton protein concentrate imported from China was contaminated with people and people-related compounds. As part of the ongoing
investigation, FDA has determined the plankton protein was used in the production of Soylent Green.
At this time, we have no evidence of harm to humans associated with the Soylent Green, and therefore no recall of the product is being issued. Testing and the joint investigation continue. If any
evidence surfaces to indicate there is harm to humans, the appropriate action will be taken.
The assessment that, if there were to be harm to human health, it would be very low, is based on a number of factors, including the dilution of the contaminating people and people-related compounds
from the original plankton protein concentrate as it moves through the food system. First, people are only a partial ingredient in plankton protein concentrate; second, plankton protein concentrate
is only a partial ingredient in Soylent Green; third, even if people are present in Soylent Green, Soylent Green is only a small part of the average American diet, which typically also includes
Soylent Yellow and Soylent Red. In addition to the dilutional factor, neither FDA nor USDA are aware of any human illness that has occurred from exposure to people or its by-products. While the
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention systems have limited ability to detect subtle problems due to ingestion of people and people-related compounds, the public should rest assured that no
problems have been detected to date. To further evaluate any potential harm to humans, the FDA is developing and implementing further tests and risk assessments based on the toxicity of people, and
how much people people could be expected to actually consume.
USDA and FDA continue to conduct a full, comprehensive examination to protect the nation’s food supply and will provide updates as new information is confirmed.
